Among Weigel’s Pet Peeves, Public Stretching

This photograph did not accompany
Politico’s story

Today, Politico‘s Patrick Gavin braves the weird, wild world of Slate‘s Dave Weigel for an “Answer This” feature. Weigel, an ex-Journolister and former WaPo blogger, answers all the questions, only once asking, “How long is this column?” Today’s feature is 17 questions.

An excerpt:

Describe a few pet peeves of yours.

How long is this column? At some point, “spitting while you walk along the street” became a popular activity in my neighborhood. I despise that, and I despise most public physical displays – stretching in public, intense PDA, spitting gum on the sidewalk, things like that. Also, ankle socks.

More public stretching photographs Weigel may wince at after the jump…
